. when you see that wreckage on the runway or off the runway here at sfo. back to you guys in new york. >> adam, when you look at those pictures of the crash, a lot of people wondering how, in fact, did those people manage to get out of this aircraft. for miles people could see this fireball sitting on the runway. we were able to talk to different passengers there. how do they describe getting out of this aircraft? >> you know, it's interesting you mention that, clayton. one of the pilots i spoke to, watching all this coverage. i know them really well. talking about a couple of things. jet fuel isn't as flammable as gasoline. that allows you more time, buys you more time than years ago. while it takes a long time to get on and off of the plane. when we're in the back, seems like it takes forever. when you have a situation like this and all the doors open, you can get people off the plane, if there are not a lot of injuries on board, can you get them off in a minute or two. you can get to exit. it's that important to pay attention to where it is, because it's that much faster for you to
wall at the end of the sfo runway and break apart. good morning and welcome to america's news headquarters. >> jamie: we are glad you are with us. there is lots of news, including a press conferences and the national transportation safety board has recovered the black boxes from the boeing 777 as they continue to investigate. they began in the wee hours of the night. they hope to interview the crew today, too, to get more answers. emergency officials releasing audio from a fire department dispatcher. >> you are approaching the north field checkpoint. i have what appears to be a moderate column of smoke coming from a downed plane. make this a red alert please... >> jamie: take a look at this animation of the crash, too. as the plane approaches, it slams into the runway. the tail literally napping off. the plane then veers off the runway, where it catches fire. adam housley is live at the san francisco international airport, where he has been monitoring all the developments. adam, we expect this news conference. what sort of update do you think we will get? >> reporter: well, fi
. >> in fact, more than 180 people were transported to 11 hospitals and the fire department here at sfo, there are three stations here, had no warning. all they were told, there was a hard landing. they had no warning of any distress. so when they arrived on the scene and saw the plane broken up, they had to go into action immediately, but they were not prepared for that. and san francisco airport is running at half capacity. there is some talk they will try to open up one runway -- one major one and one minor one are affected. as of right now, san francisco is running at half capacity. they hope to get one of the runways open today to move this process along. the entire process here probably won't be done for 5 to 6 days as they go through the crash site and remove all the debris here, as this investigation goes forward and the investigation itself, we are told, you won't hear back for potentially 8 to 9 months before we know for sure what happened. but we will get preliminary information from ntsb, later today in a press conference. >> back to you. >> thank you very much. >> fox news
learned today or at the end of the day yesterday that the guide path technology was not operational at sfo. the folks from sfo seem to suggest that that in no way shape or form should have played a role in what happened. mention about required systems. based on what you heard from the ntsb is there any suggestion that those systems could have helped prevent this if they would have been functional? >> i don't get the impression that the glide slope was the problem. it was a visual approach and pilots are trained to dot that without reference to the glide path. but i am concerned about the power being at idle whether thet auto throttles were engaged because the pilot is supposed to keep hands on the throttles for that reason and he is watching the speed decrease. as the speed decreases he starts to push the throttles forward whether the auto throttles do it or not. >> what does that tell you? >> i don't like to look back and quarterback what a captain has done or the co pilot. i can tell you that that is very unprofessional to not be in a position to control that aircraft regardless of what
had gone to sfo right away were so good at triaging and taking care of those people that by the time they got here, they had a shot. she said had they not gotten that great initial care, two of them, at least two of them who got here, would not have survived. and the number wouldn't be two dead, it might have been four. again, she's praising the first responders, craig. >> stephanie truong from kntv. thank you for that report. >>> the flight crew of asiana jet gave no indication of trouble prior to the crash. i want to bring in daniel rose, aviation attorney, former u.s. military pilot, spent a lot of time with you yesterday. thanks for coming back. the first indications of a problem with flight 214 apparently came from this controltransmission. i want to play it for you. >> 214 emergency vehicles are responding. >> emergency vehicles are responding. >> as a pilot what do you take away from the fact there was no distress call originally from the pilot. that call came from the control tower. >> that was after everything already happened there was no distress call. there was one transm
